Looking to "hard-wire" your Garmin dash cam to your vehicle's electrical system? Garmin's direct-wire power cable harness is exactly what you need to safely enable parking mode on your Garmin dash cam.
Connect your compatible Garmin dash cam to vehicle power in order to monitor for motion in front of your vehicle when parked. The Garmin parking mode cable will enable your dash cam to record for as long as possible, and will safely turn off your dash cam in case the vehicle battery drops too low, which prevents you from having a dead car battery.
The Garmin Parking Mode Cable low-voltage cutoff level is set to 11.7v by default, which works well for most passenger vehicles. If you would like to raise this cutoff level to 12.0 or 12.3v, you simply unscrew the cover to the control box and move the jumper to the appropriate pins (see product images for photo of voltage level pins). 24-volt system cutoff levels (23.4, 24.0 or 24.6v) are also available for big rigs and other heavy-duty vehicles!
Please Note: Garmin recommends not using a generic cable due to their rigorous requirement for stable charging. Keep your Garmin dashcam recording safely by using genuine Garmin accessories.
